Grafton Manor
Grafton Manor
An early sixteenth-century house, modified in 1567 by John Talbot.
The Gunpowder Plotters met here in 1605 two days before the intended event. Later that century, the then owner, Charles Talbot, mortgaged the estate and sailed to Holland to encourage William of Orange to seize the throne.
A brief Internet search revealed much breathless prose about its suitability as a wedding reception venue - being tested here.
